FLSmidth has signed a contract with Prime Cement Ltd for engineering, procurement and supply of equipment for a full-scope cement grinding plant with a capacity of 700 000 t/a. The plant will be located in Musanze/Rwanda. The contract will become effective when FLSmidth receives a down-payment from the customer, which is expected to happen later in 2017.
This is a milestone project for FLSmidth, being the first OK vertical roller mill to be supplied in East Africa and the first full scope grinding plant in Rwanda.
The contract includes a complete range of equipment from storages to packing and cement loading. FLSmidth will also supply equipment from other FLSmidth brands, such as a planetary mill gear unit from FLSmidth MAAG Gear, filters from FLSmidth Airtech, a control system and plant automation from FLSmidth Automation, a packing plant from FLSmidth Ventomatic and weighing and metering systems from FLSmidth Pfister.
